The electrical percolation effect, often enabled by electrically conductive fillers embedded in polymer matrices, has numerous applications in science and engineering. One of these applications is the use in sensor technology, where the main functions are often related to the exploitation of the percolation threshold, which leads to a characteristic sigmoidal response behaviour. Prominent applications regard monitoring of liquids for corrosion under isolation (CUI), gas sensing and other applications, such as textile embedded sensors, usually embedded in IoT networks.
The mini symposium is organised as part of an open final meeting of the project ASPASIA (Accessing New Areas for Percolation Sensing in Industrial Applications), targeting industry and academia. It will give an overview of some fundamentals and achievements and provides a platform for future activities such as technological developments and potential new applications.
